If it hadn’t been for my girlfriends this would have never happened:
Have you ever made one of those little paper rosettes? You stack 6 or so scallop circles, push a brad through the middle to hold them together, dampen the paper and then scrunch, scrunch, scrunch.
It took a LOT of loving hands to make all of those rosettes!
Robbie, Peggy, Cheryl and Crystal literally saved my life – and my fingers – and we had a wonderful time doing it (ok, mostly – it was a little bit insane). Once the rosettes were made it was pretty simple: a doily from the Petite Pennants Bigz die, a flower trimmed from the 5/8 inch Flower Trim, some Pear Pizazz Seam Binding (a Clearance Rack SCORE!), Hemp Twine (also from the Rack) and Linen Thread.
I made the tags a couple of days later, although Crystal was the one who designed them so that I could print them on my printer and then punch them out.
These favor jars were filled with an amazing seasoning salt made here on Maui by a dear, wonderful woman named Iris Nitta. Carol knew her from her Baldwin High School days, and when Carol graduated from college she worked on Maui with Iris’s son-in-law for a while. He brought the season salt to his co-workers as a Christmas gift that year, and when it was time to find something for the favors Carol knew exactly what she wanted. Iris made up a special batch for us and for a few days my car – and my house – smelled divinely as nearly 40 pounds of salt waited to be put into jars! All the loving hands that participated in this wedding made every aspect so special.
I’m really glad Carol and Clarence decided to keep the guest list under 100 guests.

You would have finished them, alright. We just might have found you surrounded by the jars babbling… couldn’t have that! Just beautiful, by the way!
Babbling, drooling and twitching!! When it’s your turn I’ll be at your service 🙂
Did you use a special paper?
Joann, I used Stampin’ Up! Very Vanilla, Garden Green, and Brushed Gold. For the favors and decorations I was able to purchase Pear Pizazz and Blushing Bride from the Clearance Rack but the invitations were completed last fall. All Stampin’ Up!!
Thank you ,I will try it. Joann
